I have had Ulcerative colitis for 7 years, and been on prednisone for about 6 years. I began with a severe case in which I laid on the couch and suffered. I had to go to the bathroom alot and I hurt every time I ate. I lost alot of blood in my stools went from 150 lbs. to 89 lbs. I had to take a great amount of prednisone. I was blessed to get back into remission as I ate a extremely strict diet. But I could never again get off of prednisone. The least I could ever get down to was 10 mg every other day. I kept on having periods of remission followed by periods of bleeding. I would wean myself down, only to eventually start bleeding again and having to up the dosage of prednisone to 20 mg and then 40mg. I started having the side effects of prednisone show up and I hated the prednisone but could never get off of it. This year I prayed and fasted that I would find a natural treatment for Colitis. I eventually found a study done on the effects of Boswellia on Colitis on the internet. I decided to try boswellia and my dad (a chiropractor and naturopath) ordered some. I took it in pill form as I was weaning off of the prednisone(5mg less every week).I took 2 Boswellia pills 3 times a day. I also had acupuncture treatments. Before I started weaning off I waited until I was not bleeding. I was not ever able to get off of prednisone until I took boswellia. I also keep a very strict diet in which I don't eat wheat,gluten(except for in corn), citrus fruits, sugar (except for fructose and a small amount of evaporated cane sugar in natural foods),soy, no milk products except yogurt and keep off of several other things. I started on a very strict low-stress diet and added foods one at a time, waiting 3 days inbetween to see if it made my Colitis worse or made me bleed. If it did not make my symptoms worse I added it to my diet. Otherwise I kept off of it. I have finally been able to lose the weight I put on with prednisone and get rid of some of the side effects as I have been off of prednisone and on Boswellia for about 2 months now with no symptoms. Now I only take boswellia and 3 asacol a day. I take it in a joint formula called Clinical Nutrients For Joint Health by PhytoPharmica (Boswellia is a natural anti-inflammatory). I highly recommend it. I have experienced no side effects for the boswellia. It is truly a great blessing and my prayers have been answered. PLEASE TRY THIS. IT REALLY WORKS!

Thanks for the information.But i was curious if Boswella will do good to people with UC who cannot
tolerate high fibre foods.And yes where to get them?

I am a female who is on 6 tabs of Asacol everyday.I have to take Enemas every 3 months.Is that too much?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you

You can get them at a health store, or a market such as Wholefoods and perhaps Mother's Market if you are in Orange County, CA. Call your local healthfood stores to check! Good luck!
